Meghalaya is a beautiful destination in Northeast India. However, recently Meghalaya closed its borders to protect its population from spreading the Covid-19 infection. After a long period of closing its borders for tourists, the government of Meghalaya has decided to allow tourists starting 1st September.
The opening of the borders will bring in tourists that will help the ailing tourist economy of the state. All tourist attractions will be reopened starting 1st September.
The government of Meghalaya has also announced some guidelines that will need to be followed by all tourists before they travel.
- Fully vaccinated tourists will be allowed to travel all through Meghalaya without any restriction.
- Partially vaccinated tourists who have only received one dose of the vaccine will have to get an RT-PCR test done 72 hours before traveling. A negative report will have to be produced at the borders upon arrival.
Meghalaya closed its borders in the month of May and since then it has not allowed any tourists to visit the state. Opening of the borders will bring in much-needed revenue for the local businesses.
The following article from ‘Times of India’ gives the details about the announcement made by the state government of Meghalaya.
